VIVID SYDNEY: Slashies!

June 2 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

Juggling multiple jobs to support your creative practice? You’re amongst friends here! Slashies! is your go-to panel-slash-support group for creative professionals pursuing more than one avenue of work. Meet maestros-of-multiple-hats as they discuss their peripatetic careers and discover the innovations that can help you manage the business challenges so you can live your best #slashlife.

Artists have long supported their creative practice by holding down a second or third job, and a ‘portfolio career’ is nothing new for freelancers, however it’s time to lift the lid on the realities of a ‘slashie’ life. Is this juggle a passionate journey towards multi-skilled creative and financial fulfilment? Is it a life of business bewilderment and financial exploitation where you’re destined for burnout? Or is it both?

Come along for the chance to meet, talk and learn from each other as we share the honest stories of expert ‘slashies’ about how they juggle their own careers, navigate the pitfalls and celebrate the benefits. You’ll also meet experts from the world of creative business and arts enterprise, and receive extra resources and support to help ‘slashies’ continue onto entrepreneurial success.

Slashies in the arts rarely have a chance to talk together about the challenges they face, or the tricks and tips that help them live their best #slashlife. If the ‘gig economy’ and the portfolio career are here to stay, slashies need to work together to ensure they survive and thrive on their pioneering paths.

Meet maestros-of-multiple-hats Jeff McCann, Chika Ikogwe, Travis de Vries, and Dr Kate Smith as they discuss their peripatetic careers and discover the innovations that can help you manage the business challenges so you can live your best #slashlife.

We’ll be taking over the UTS Great Hall on Thursday 2 June from 3pm. Tickets are free—scribble down your panellist questions, tell ya friends, and claim your seat ASAP!
